Baltic countries will no longer buy electricity from Russia and Belarus
Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have refused to use electricity from Russia and Belarus, opting instead for a European grid.
According to the decision, the operation of the BRELL system, which unites the Baltic countries with Russia and Belarus, will be suspended until at least 2025. The Baltic states' politicians are seeking to cooperate on electricity supply with the European grid and have already approved the relevant decision.
The Head of the Power Supply Division forecasts changes in the cost of electricity for consumers in the event of failure of the BRELL network. He also added that cooperation in the field of electricity supply to the Baltic States and the EU depends on the size of possible European funding.
The leaders of the Baltic states see the rejection of electricity from Russia and Belarus as an important step towards ensuring full security in the energy sector.
